A red 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible listing appears in the Cars On Line newsletter this weekend. COL readers have heard us recite the old adage, “If you find a first generation Ford Thunderbird for under $30,000 … buy it!” That is still true today. We are still seeing high No. 2 condition show cars selling for over $100,000 at major auctions. So to find a classic Flame red 1957 Ford Thunderbird that looks as good as this one for under $30,000 is something worth checking out. The car is offered for sale by Mershons in Springfield, Ohio. (Click here to see the Mershons ad and photos.) Dan Mershon knows how to buy cars. And this is a true classic find, with the 312 ci V8, fender skirts, Continental kit and chrome laced wheels. This one is worth having inspected. (Tap this link to read about the Cars On Line inspection service.) It will be our DEAL of the DAY on Sunday as the price is very affordable at $29,900.
The DEAL of the DAY preview is part of Cars On Line’s weekly newsletter. Newsletter subscribers can preview all of the DEALs of the DAY for the coming week when they read the Cars On Line newsletter each week. It gives you first shot at all the cars that will be offered in the DEAL of the DAY feature on the Cars On Line home page. Often these cars sell in the newsletter before they even make it to the home page! You’ll always see them in the newsletter first.
Here is what Mershons had to say about their red 1957 Ford Thunderbird:
“Flame Red with Red Interior and a Soft Top. 312 V-8 with 3 Speed Manual Transmission. Options include Power Steering, AM-FM Radio, Fender Skirts, Continental Kit, and Chrome Laced Wheels with Wide Whitewall Radial Tires. Nice paint over a clean body with a very great fit, nice chrome, stainless and trim! Nicely detailed throughout. This ’57 looks, runs and drives great!!” (Click here for more photos.)
